Out in the Bay - Gay Radio from San Francisco    

Queer histories, herstories, personalities and issues are explored with humor, insight, and sensitivity each week on Out in the Bay.  We've been called “the gay Fresh Air” and even "the gay Tavis Smiley." We’ve interviewed such celebrities as film directors Ang Lee and John Waters, comedians Margaret Cho and Marga Gomez, singers Leslie Gore and Michael Feinstein,  actors, authors and more.  We’ve also featured historians, scholars, and activists -- including Phyllis Lyon and the late Del Martin -- with compelling stories about the reality of LGBT life.

"I'm Already Disturbed ..." critiques M.D.s and social media

One of many Facebook post screen shots in Gabrielle Glancy's book "I'm Already Disturbed Please Come In"

During a long, debilitating illness doctors failed to diagnose, author Gabrielle Glancy had enough energy to save Facebook screenshots, but not enough to write.  The award-winning poet and nationally known college admissions expert later wove them into a book about her ordeal. I'm Already Disturbed Please Come In: Parasites, Social Media & Other Planetary Disturbances (A Memoir, of Sorts) critiques  Western medicine and social media, and examines love in sickness and in health.  Gabrielle Glancy is Eric Jansen's guest on Out in the Bay, 7pm Thursday, March 5.  At the end of our half-hour, a morsel of music from Home Street Home, a provocative rock opera about homeless youth, drugs and BDSM that wraps up its world premiere run Saturday, 3/7, at Z Space in San Francisco.
